Of course there are many mangroves on the Karimunjawa islands. But by far the most extensive lie between the two main islands Karimunjawa and Kemujan. In fact the two are connected by this field of mangroves. The road to the airport crosses them and only a small bridge indicates that you pass from one island to the other. Young boys go fishing at the bridge.

Part of the forest has recently been promoted to 'educational forest', to make the locals aware of its value. Several trees visible from the road have name-tags on them.

Directions: Between the islands Karimunjawa and Kemujan.
